Joint Chiefs is one of my three favorite Santa Cruz bands. The other two are Extra Large and Cindy Edwards and the Road Hogs. For info on this meetup nite's band, see:
As many of you know, there are no reservations for tables at the bar where the band plays at Michael's. However, even standing, this is a small cozy/friendly place. When not raining, there is often outside heating situated in both verandas.
Last time our Transplants meetup attended Cindy Edwards a few weeks ago, there were not even tables in the back rooms that were available. It was first come/first serve. Arriving at 6:30 pm, Carl and I barely managed to get us a main table, where those coming first sat and others gathered 'round. Hopefully this time we will be as lucky, if not luckier. In the past, i have often found easier seating, even with Extra Large. One never knows....
Thus: this event's outcome with seating (and parking) will most likely depend upon how many people get there 6:00 to 7:00 pm, joining Carl and me, in reserving tables!!!
Having accomplished this, Balloons at Table will say " SC Transplants". I encourage carpooling. Contact those living near you for this purpose, assuming that you know each other. We are in Aptos, feel free to contact me via my profile, email link underneath my pic.
